Work package 5 - TRC confined columns

Coordination: VUB-MEMC, WTCB, MACH, 3D

In WP 5, the loadbearing performance of TRC structural formwork as reinforcement for slender concrete columns will be studied. The behaviour of plain concrete columns reinforced with TRC formwork will be experimentally investigated for various TRC composite materials and slenderness ratios. The experimental results can validate FE modelling, lead to design guidelines and provide valuable input for WP 4 (integrated slender columns in loadbearing sandwich wall).
